Yes, Hanukkah happens late this year, but that does not mean that you should limit yourself to your gift shopping! To help you get started, we have taken the help of the only Jill Zarin a woman who knows how to choose outstanding gifts. "When I choose a gift, I really try to think about what that person likes or wants," the Real Housewives of New York City say. "Something thoughtful is worth a lot more than something from Chanel. Well, everything from Chanel is great."
"Let's face it, Hanukkah is all about gifts, but it's about getting the right gift," Jill says. "Until your children move out of the house, I think children should get a gift for eight nights every night, after which they will probably prefer a bigger gift."
As for holiday entertainment? "Someone in the family really needs a Hanukkah party," notes Jill. "You have to have a menorah and for me you also need potato pancakes like the ones my grandma did. Bobby has always said that they are like potato knives. That's the way they should be! And you have to have chocolate and you have to play dreidel. "
Jill offers eight thoughtful gift ideas – one for each night of Hanukkah – and we've added another special must-have below.
For the Family: Board Games
"I love board games for a family gift – they're all inclusive," Jill says. "I love Monopoly because I love money and real estate, Scrabble, Words With Friends and Backgammon are great too."
For you: Le Labo Santal 33 Eau de Parfum
"Women like something personal, something feminine, Note to husbands: Definitely not a device," advises Jill astutely. "My friend Wendy wears this and every time I smell her, I ask, 'What are you wearing?' For whomever you get it, this perfume will change her life."
For him: Boston Harbor Leather New Zealand Classic Jacket
"I think a leather jacket makes a man look sexy and they are not as expensive as they used to be, this quality at a great price, for less than $ 100 this is a stunning leather jacket."
For Kids / Teenagers: Stoney Clover Lane Bags
"My daughter Ally has told me about this brand, and kids love to have things personalized."
For the Home: A Rug by Jill Zarin
"Well, of course, why not change the carpet in your living room this holiday season? Anyone can enjoy it, even your pets, because it's pet-friendly – almost everything can be removed with a damp towel."
For the fitness fan: Theragun Percussive Therapy Device
"Someone brought me in. It's not just a massager, it's laying on your muscles and it vibrates and shatters things and soothes pain, it's the perfect way to treat yourself after an intense workout." ]
For the Traveler: Quilted Koala Backpack
"Do not you just love it? I have it in gold, I wear it everywhere, it has a sleeve for my laptop and two press stud pockets – one for my phone and one for my keys and a zipper for my money It suits everything you need and it's so fancy I get so many compliments. "
Lavishly: Shifman Mattress
"A good night's sleep is the ultimate gift for everyone, we just bought a new Shifman mattress from Bloomies, my grandfather was a mattress maker when he came to America, and he taught my father how to handle the coils by hand tying it to make the bed I have a natural spring feeling A few friends have recommended this brand and I can not wait to get it. "
